Festival Location & Accommodation

AND Festival 2017 will take take place in Castleton – a picturesque village in the High Peak District of Derbyshire, northern England – and in the nearby city of Sheffield. It is easy to travel between the two sites by car and public transport, and there are a range of B&B’s, guesthouse, hotels and youth hostels in both locations, to host you during your stay.

How to get there?

Castleton itself does not have a train station, Hope Station is the closest, just an 8 minute drive away (45 minute walk) from Castleton’s Visitor Centre in the heart of the village.

Sheffield has a large train station, with routes going to a number of locations around the country, regularly throughout the day.
